Sony MDR-X10 Headphones Review: So Much Bass That Even I Feel Old
26 November 2013
Excerpt: Let's not beat around the bush: the Sony MDR-X10's are ridiculously overwrought, flashy, made out of plastic, and endorsed by Simon Cowell. The Beats market is squarely in Sony's crosshairs with this headphone. Even the price point ($300 - street and MSRP) matches up with Dr.
Summary: These are some great cans, but they do have some faults. The lows and the highs are very good, but the middles tends to fade out. I would say that these cans would sound best with some sort of electronic, techno, hip-hop, or pop. Ive also noticed that they work well with country as well as rock.
Pros: Great lows and highs, sound quality, comfortable, portable
Summary: Build Quality & Design
The build quality on these isn't so good in the long run, the entire headphone is mostly constructed out of plastic the only metal part on these cans would be the earcups, when it's held in the hands the headphones do feel a bit flimsy and light; because of this they gave me a...
Pros: very comfortable, great sounding bass, and great design (somewhat)
Cons: bad treble range, build quality isn't so good, ears will get sweaty and hot for a short period of time
Summary: I'll come back and put a full review up, suffice to say these have a lot of bass, coming from the XBA line. They are by far the neatest looking cans that Sony's released, but fragile indeed, as the cups scratch easily.
Pros: Comfortable, Punchy and tight bass
Cons: Scratches easily, Veiled Mids and Trebles due to sheer amount of bass
Summary: These are definatly my favorite cans . I bought them intending to amp them even though they have a low impedence they can take 3000mw . I have always been a bass head but i require clean bass but a lot of it!!
Excerpt: The concept of “personal music” has become so embedded in modern culture that we no longer even entertain the idea of not pocketing our music and piping it directly into our brains.
Pros: Ear pads are plush and comfy. Deep, rich, dynamic sound. Comes with two replaceable flat cords and a 1/4-inch plug for an audiophile sound system. They fold up for portability. High-quality protective case.
Cons: Price is steep. Headband could use a little more padding at the top of the head. Tough to simultaneously wear glasses.
